    I have some exams that have the option to, for example, "Answer any 4 of the 6 questions" or "Answer question 1 and any 3 from question 2 to 6"

    In this situation, how would you revise for the exam? Study only the 4 topics or study everything? :holmes:

    If the topics are standalone the rule we are recommended to use is to revise 2n topics, where n is the number of questions you have to answer. 2n+2 to be safe.

    I revise everything regardless of the exam format. Best to be prepared for everything. If I look at past papers and see a particular topic come up every year, then I will put more effort into revising those topics.

    I would revise everything, just to be on the safe side

    I wouldn't revise at all, but I'm lazy and fail at life.

    Revise all but one probably.

    It depends though. My 250FIN module had an optional section but they contained bits of everything, whereas my 321BSS was split very definitely into topics - I revised all but one for that.

    Would it help if I said, that the same 6 topics appear every year? :holmes:

    would definitely only revise 4 if they're all the same each year, can't see much point in spreading revision thinner, may as well know more detail about less
